Nestled on the banks of the Hooghly River, Kolkata is a booming metropolis, India's second largest city, and the country's cultural hub, known for being the birthplace of major artistic and literary movements.
You'll explore and learn at Netaji Bhawan and Rabindra Bharati University Museum. Chandannagar Church and The Strand will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kolkata (Calcutta): Sacred Heart Church (in Chandannagar), Second Hooghly Bridge (in Howrah) and Shrine Basilica Bandel (in Hooghly). There's lots more to do: browse the exhibits of Vivekananda Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Pareshnath Jain Temple, view the masterpieces at Academy of Fine Arts, and examine the collection at Tagore House.
